CREATING AN AGREEMENT
FOR FREELANCE WRITERS
COMPLEMENTARY TO AN ASSIGNMENT LETTER,
an agreement that clearly states the story fees and usage
terms is essential to businesslike dealings in the writereditor relationship. Editors should ensure that the writer has
agreed to the fee and terms before expecting work to begin
on an assignment. Writers should consider the agreement in
the context of the assignment to ensure the whole package
seems worthwhile before beginning work. Both parties
should be prepared to negotiate the scope of the
assignment, the fee and the usage to reach an agreement.
Writers who are comfortable with the payment and terms,
and who receive payment on schedule, are more likely to
reward the publication with great story ideas in the future.
Please note that this is not a legal document. It merely
offers suggestions for creating an agreement between your
organiza-tion and freelance writers. N
